Katie Price hits back at trolls who shamed her for sharing a bed with her son Harvey, 20, as she reveals he has a girlfriend

Katie Price has hit back at cruel online trolls who criticized her for sleeping in the same bed as her disabled son Harvey.

The model, 44, had shared a video of her hugging Harvey over Christmas, prompting people to give their unsolicited opinions.

Harvey suffers from Prader-Willi syndrome, a rare complex genetic disorder, and severe autism and is blind and lives in a home.

Speaking to Women’s Radio Station on Tuesday, Katie explained that Harvey’s special needs make the situation different than if it had been one of her other children.

She said, “Harvey is a big baby. In college they are not allowed to hug and touch him or anything.

“When he’s here, he just wants to hold my hand, stroke my hair, give me kisses. I don’t care what anyone says, they can think what they want.’

One follower wrote, “Totally inappropriate for his age, whatever his needs,” while another added, “So not appropriate Katie.”

And a third said: ‘That’s sick!’.

Katie captioned the short video: “Harvey is already home and gets into my bed like a baby who wants to be cuddled.”

Further followers commented, “Something is not right here, I don’t think it’s appropriate to do this.”

And a fourth said, “No offense intended, is that healthy?” with another writing: ‘Ok toooo weird it’s time to unfollow’.

Many other fans defended Katie, declaring something really sweet to do for Christmas.

One said, ‘My son is 25, non-verbal autistic still pops in for a hug every now and then. He is and will always be my baby, our boys clearly still need comfort and reassurance. Enjoy these precious moments. Merry christmas’.

While another wrote, “I love Harvey, for God’s sake leave Katie alone. Hasn’t she been through enough. Merry Christmas Katie to all your family. Rise above the haters, they’re just jealous’.

Speaking about how autism affects Harvey and his girlfriend’s behavior, she said, “They’re not social. They’re blunt and factual, and they just make me laugh.”

Harvey’s father is football player Dwight Yorke, 51, who is not present in his life.

Meanwhile, Katie reportedly had her 16th breast implant procedure in December in an effort to get the “biggest breasts in the country.”

But she was later said to have been left in ‘pain’ after the operation and was suffering from severe back pain. She was also said to be upset by the results, claiming doctors left her with “wobbly” breasts.

According to The Sun, she had sleepless nights from the massive 2120 CC implant and is already considering having it removed.
